Taking a break.

I'm going to be taking a break from blogging for awhile. I don't know how long but I just felt the need to post it. Hopefully a little time away will make me miss it and I'll come back but right now it just feels like more of a chore than something I like to do.

Jodee B's Favorite Things: February!

Ok, I'm totally slacking but I've been really busy and have a bunch of updates coming soon! Until then, here are my favorites for February!

- Favorite Movie: Dallas Buyers Club


This movie was phenomenal! Every thing from the story to the acting to the cinematography. Just an all around great great film, that I recommend 100%. If you haven't yet seen it, you need to. It's an important film that should be seen by everyone.

- Favorite Pattern: Quatrefoil


My all time favorite pattern will forever be chevron, but lately I've been loving quatrefoil. I recently got this pillow from Home Goods and I just love it so much. It's the little things, people.

- Favorite Accessory: iPhone 5s Gold


I recently got a new iPhone. The gold 5s to be exact and can I just say I'm obsessed with it? I had been wanting the gold 5s since they came out last year and I impatiently waited till the new year to get it. It's literally attached to my hip, I don't go anywhere without it. I'm obsessed, I may need rehab.

- Favorite Scent: Juicy Watermelon by Yankee Candle


Being that in Florida it's the beginning of Spring, all things sweet smelling are what rules right now and this scent from Yankee Candle is my favorite. It's rich and sweet and just makes you feel good when you walk into a room and smell this. I bought so many tarts of this scent, it's criminal. Get to Yankee Candle and smell this!

- Favorite song: Britney Spears - Hot as Ice (Danja Remix)


Loveeee this new remix that my favorite Britney producer recently released. Hot as Ice is already a great song, but with this remix it makes me fall in love all over again. Viva la Britney! ;)

That's it for February! I'll be back soon with front of the house updates! My dad & a family friend recently built my pergola (Yeah, it's done!), and Taylor (my amazing niece and bestie) will be back next Friday to spend a week with me, which means we will be doing what we love to do, paint! Can't wait to share before and afters. :)

Good times.

This past weekend was quite the fun yet full of DIY. My darling niece/bestie Taylor came and spent 4 days with me and while she was here we worked on Gracie's new big girl room. Taylor and I are such a great team when it comes to DIY, well technically we make a great team in life, but yanno. Best friends. Anyway, we painted, built furniture, played with decor and laughed and joked the whole weekend. I adore having her here! Check out Gracie's room. Keep in mind, we are waiting for Gracie's new floor to get here from Lumber Liquidators, probably a couple weeks till that's here and then we'll be putting that in.

The lighting in these pictures is pretty terrible. I guess it was just the time of day I took the pictures.

This is the view when you walk into her room, from the hallway.









This corner bookshelf was originally white, but I spruced it up and painted it coral and baby pink. It turned out great! The art on either side of the shelf was printed and 3 out of the 4 were hand painted. Taylor did one and I did three. I'll take close ups of those for my next post.







Close up of the dresser. It was originally an old wood looking dresser that we got for free, like the bookshelf. But I knew right from the beginning that I wanted to paint it ombre. I love how it turned out!



The decor above Gracie's bed is probably my favorite part. Here she is enjoying her new room! :)



Aaand that's it! We're currently getting the front of the house repairs underway, by the end of the week fancy new pergola will be going up. I'm so excited! Ahh, the joys of being a homeowner. ;)
